The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Thursday has approved former premier and PDM joint candidate Yousuf Raza Gilani’s nomination papers for the upcoming Senate polls.

While announcing the reserved verdict, the returning officer has rejected the objections raised by PTI leader Fareed Rehman and allowed Yousuf Raza Gilani to contest the elections.

During a hearing on Wednesday, the former prime minister’s lawyer had contended his client had completed the sentence given to him by the Supreme Court. He said Gilani was then able to contest the election.
